Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I've been a veterinarian for 15 years. Thank you for your question about Bonnie. A recessed vulva is basally a vulva that sits deeper in the ventral groin area. It isn't as prominent as it sits in the folds of the tissue there a little more. A recessed vulva is something that she's had for her entire life. Nothing really has changed anatomically to just now cause this. Is she having urinary issues?
